Speak SLOWLY and DISTINCTLY at ALL times. In the telephoning of words, the vowel sounds should be given their ordinary value.

The sounds of the consonants should be emphasised. When it is necessary to spell out call signs, unusual words, figures, etc., the following Phonetic Alphabet and Figure Code should be used:

Letter Phonetic Letter Phonetic
A Alpha N November
B Bravo O Oscar
C Charlie P Papa
D Delta Q Quebec
E Echo R Romeo
F Foxtrot S Sierra
G Golf T Tango
H Hotel U Uniform
I India V Victor
J Juliet W Whisky
K Kilo X X-Ray
L Lima Y Yankee
M Mike Z Zulu

Number Codes

The numeric codes are used less frequency, usually only in conditions of bad reception:

  • 0 : nah-dah-zay-roh
  • 1 : ooo-hag-one
  • 2 : bees-soh-two
  • 3 : tay-rah-three
  • 4 : kar-tay-four
  • 5 : pan tah-five
  • 6 : sok-see-six
  • 7 : say-tay-seven
  • 8 : ok-toh-eight
  • 9 : no-vay-nine
  • Thousand : tou-sand
